11/18 - Buffalo - Brian W.
1-Paul-L.-Luedtke-11-17-13-BRW.jpg (135405 bytes)
The Paul L. Luedtke is bringing her scow up the Buffalo River at the CSX CP-1 Drawbridge. This was originally the New York Central's "River Bridge" or signal station "RB" in their nomenclature.
2-Paul-L.-Luedtke-11-17-13-BRW.jpg (147367 bytes)
Holding position in the river (which really is just an industrialized creek) can be tricky. The tug is throttling against the wind & current while waiting for a lift at the CSX CP Draw Bridge ahead, out of view to the left.
3-Paul-L.-Luedtke-11-17-13-BRW.jpg (116913 bytes)
The old Nickel Plate RR bridge is permanently raised & CP Draw is about to go up for the passage of the tug & her scow. All 3 bridges in my photos today are 100 years old as of 2013.
4-Paul-L.-Luedtke-11-17-13-BRW.jpg (132268 bytes)
On her way back down, the Paul Luedtke is clear of the draw as the bridge comes down behind her. Originally constructed over dry land, the river was then rerouted under the bridges for navigation purposes.
5-Paul-L.-Luedtke-11-17-13-BRW.jpg (119386 bytes)
The tug looks to have been recently painted with a nice & clean appearance as she waits for the bridge at CP-1. The CSX bridge operator has to get permission from the dispatcher before he lets the tug through.
